That's ridiculously impressive. Great job on getting all that to fit in the GBA SP, especially without even removing the battery compartment.

Wow great job! You beat me to it, I'm working on an SP build also. Glad to see someone has been able to accomplish it.

How did you fit the micro USB into the connector like that?
